MIV Catch Up - Muddy Stilettos Herts

Pippa Chappell, the editor of Muddy Stilettos Herts, joined us on Twitter for #MIVReveals on 31st August 2016.   Muddy Stilettos was founded in 2012 - an online guide to the very best restaurants, walks, boutiques, day trips, hotels, interiors and events. 

@muddyherts thanks for joining us Pippa Chappell, could you firstly just explain to us what it is you do? #MIVReveals

@Myincventures Hello! I edit Muddy Stilettos Herts exploring the coolest, quirkiest goings-on around the county. #MIVReveals

@muddyherts Can you tell us about your background and what inspired you to start up your #business? #MIVReveals

@Myincventures I've been writing for years and grew up right here in #Herts, so I positively leaped at the chance when I was invited to bring Muddy into #Herts from its beginnings in Bucks/Oxon @muddystiletto. A great opportunity. #MIVReveals

@muddyherts Can you tell us more about your #blog and your target audience? #MIVReveals

@Myincventures The blog is all about what's going on in Herts and I hope it has the feeling of chatting with a friend, preferably over a G and T :-) ... about where's good to go, what's fun to do, that sort of thing.  The target audience?  It's people who are interested in where they're living - and who want to enjoy their local life.  #MIVReveals

@muddyherts Great! What have been the biggest challenges of setting up your #business? #MIVReveals

@Myincventures Covering the whole county! But I'm loving exploring the towns and villages I don't know as well as others. #MIVReveals

@muddyherts What would you say is your proudest #business moment so far? #MIVReveals

@Myincventures Hard to say. I'm very proud of being a finalist 2 years in a row in the @hertsdigiawards for sure. But proudest when I heard that winning a Muddy Award encouraged one woman to expand her own business. Loved it. #MIVReveals

@muddyherts What support have you received in starting up your business? Have you had any #businessadvice or training? #MIVReveals

@Myincventures LOADS of informal support from business owners through #networking and from working with @muddystiletto. #MIVReveals

@muddyherts How beneficial did you find this support? #MIVReveals

@Myincventures Good support, even just coffee and a chat, is vital. It's important to be able to take AND LEAVE advice, though! #MIVReveals

@muddyherts We all know that juggling a business is hard work, how do you manage your time and ensure everything gets done? #MIVReveals

@Myincventures It's a MASSIVE challenge! There's always something else to be done. Proper time out is hard but SO important. #MIVReveals

@muddyherts Finally Pippa, what does the future hold? Any exciting plans we should keep an eye out for? #MIVReveals

@Myincventures There's always something exciting to look forward to! Always stay tuned for more and better on Muddy Herts... :-) #MIVReveals

@muddyherts Thanks so much for joining us today, Pippa Chappell. We'll keep reading your blog! #MIVReveals

@Myincventures I've had a blast, thank you for inviting me! Hope you enjoy reading the blog as much as I do writing it! #MIVReveals
